Our History

We are rooted from the heart of Rio de Janeiro. When our academy was founded in 2008, I wanted to preserve the history and quality of Master Carlson Gracie style Jiujitsu.  Finding the Nova Geraçāo family was exactly what our community needed. A collection of competitors, coaches, students and families all committed to growing a community around quality instruction and a constant drive for improvement. As a member of our team, you will experience jiujitsu in a way that is as unique as you. We are all committed to help one another grow as people, competitors, and casual practitioners. We hope that all our members experience the positive nature of our team. Jiujitsu is a big commitment and we hope that our family is right for you.
